Things You Think Hulk Hogan Lied About

Hulk Hogan has said many things that have been proven to be lies, such as him hanging out with Elvis when he wrestled in Memphis, partying with John Belushi 4 years after he died, etc.

But what about the stories he's told that have not yet been proven false that you still think he lied about?

Here's a few I'm pretty sure he lied about.

Hogan said that during his WWE run from 1984 to 1992, he said he would often sweat a lot during his matches. This is true. However, he said that when he put the championship belt on after his matches his sweat would ruin the leather of the belt and Vince McMahon would buy him a new belt every month. That I don't believe.


Another was that he once made up his mind to kill himself and had a gun with him. He was about to pull the trigger when Muhammad Ali's daughter called him and he didn't go through with it.


He also said that he saw Andre take a crap in a bath tub and he filled the whole thing up.


What other things has Hogan said that you don't believe, even though they haven't been proven false yet?

Re: Things You Think Hulk Hogan Lied About

Hogan lies a lot but I think a lot time this stories are somewhat true but he hypes them up bigger then they are. Yes, I guess thats still a lie but gotta remember the guy's career was to make us believe that something fake was actually "real"

Do I think he had a gun & was ready to kill himself? No probably not. But did he have a bout of depression and Layla happened to talk him up? Could be very likely...but that doesnt make a good story does it?

Did Andre shit in a tub? Of course he did. A lot of people have reported that. The bathrooms in Japan were impossible for Andre to use. He shit in tubs & on the beds themselves. Did he fill it up? Well no but saying "Andre dropped a turd in a bathtub" doesnt make the story interesting.

Hes just that guy that likes to make thing bigger then they really are for entertainment purposes. You kinda just have to listen to his stories and decipher what really happened

A guy that came to fame when 'rasslin' was still mostly ran by carnys stretches the truth?! You can probably take at least 60% of what Hogan says with a grain of salt. But the brother really does mean well..brother!

That his match with Sting at Starrcade 97 was bad because Sting was out of shape and had lost motivation to wrestle.

Despite the fact that Sting and Luger ran their own gym and were there practically every day.

Despite the fact that Sting was begging Bischoff to return to in ring action several months earlier.

Re: Things You Think Hulk Hogan Lied About

He embellishes a lot, not the same as outright lying.

The Andre bathtub story? I'm sure it happened, you don't just make that up out of thin air. But maybe he's exaggerating a bit how much it filled up the tub...

Killing himself....well, you shouldn't make fun of people who go through severe depression. Maybe again he's over-dramatizing a tad bit, but if there wasn't truth to it he wouldn't be saying it.

The sweat and title belt? Never heard that before. But if I had to guess, this happened a few times and so he built it up to "once a month".

It's the art of storytelling. I don't know why some fans are always getting so offended about some of the things he says.

There's a difference between being wrong about something and lying. Hogan not knowing what went down at the screwjob and just talking out of his @ I wouldn't call lying.
